Such frivolous reporting has a direct impact on my reputation being besmirched and is causing damage to my career which I have painstakingly built with years of hard work. I have never procured or consumed any narcotic or contraband substances of any form in my life. I intend to pursue the full extent of legal remedies available to me as a law abiding citizen of India. Thanks to my supporters for standing by me,” she said in a statement shared on her Instagram page.On Tuesday, some reports claimed that Dia’s name came up during the interrogation of drug peddlers and that she might be called in for questioning by the NCB.Also read | Irrfan Khan’s son Babil shares heartfelt note for mom Sutapa Sikdar: ‘Nothing left for me to live now but you and Ayaan’Bollywood’s alleged drug links have come under the scanner during an investigation into Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
